This tapestry shows the story of William the Conquer for people who were illiterate back in the 11th century. The workmanship is amazing and it was worth seeing.

Where do you go on a wet day in Normandy? Inside - and this was a brilliant choice. Obviously not as busy as peak season but several well behaved school parties from England and France. The audio guide brought the tapestry to life. I would...More
